Help us find the person caught on camera stealing a $2,300 piece of equipment in broad daylight.

(UPDATE) The stolen wood splitter and it's owner were reunited at 11 P.M. thanks to the good Samaritan who reached out with a tip on where it could be found.  More details coming later this morning.

Around 1:45 P.M on Thursday, September 16th the owner of a brand new gray SpeeCo Split Master wood splitter walked inside his house for a few minutes.  By the time he walked back outside, his new piece of heavy equipment had been lifted from his driveway on Jennings Drive just off of Gull Road in Kalamazoo.
